A Better Way to Bathe

January 29, 2008

It's always wonderful to ward off a winter chill and soothe post-holiday stress with some time in the tub. But beware. ultra hot water and harsh products can actually draw moisture out of your skin. That doesn't mean you need to be afraid of a good, pampering soak. There's a host of hydrating and natural products out there that will leave your skin softer and smoother than when you first stepped in. 

After a long, hectic day that involves working way past normal quitting time, the only thing that helps soothe and distress my mind is the Primavera Relax Bath Oil. As soon as I step into the tub, the light and luscious combination of vanilla and lavender instantly helps me unwind. And afterwards, the blend of organic plant oils leaves my skin silky soft and glowing. No post-bath moisturizer is necessary. which is good because I'm usually too relaxed to bother.

Ideal for children and adults, Erbaviva's Sniffle Bath Essence uses an organic blend of immune-enhancing Eucalyptus, Tea Tree & Lavender to help ease respiratory stress. Simply stick your little one in a tub filled with warm water and just a couple drops of the essence to help quiet a cough and calm chest congestion.

In our house it's always necessary to keep a bottle of the Dr.Hauschka Spruce Bath handy. This warming oil captures the pure power of Norway spruce to help harmonize your spirit while gently calming your body. The refreshing scent is definitely intense, but you'll breathe deeper and easier than you have in a long time.

Now if your idea of heaven is a giant tub filled with scented bubbles, look no further than Suzanne aux bains Bath Foam Bliss for your next fix. The organic French formula combines plant oils and extracts to help nourish and smooth while the rich bubbles instantly elevate your mood. Plus the scent is simply amazing.

Valentines Day is right around the corner and to help get you into a romantic state of mind I recommend the aromatheraputic Primavera Eros Bath Oil. The sensual combination of sultry Osmanthus and Ylang Ylang help stimulate the senses. And the silky oil leaves your skin feeling like velvet and ready to be touched.
